Jordan is perhaps best known for the lost city of Petra with its famous Treasury and Monastery. Delve deeper into Jordan and you’ll find the red desert sands of Wadi Rum and the welcoming Bedouin tribes, the coral-filled Gulf of Aqaba, the healing waters of the Dead Sea, and Amman, Jordan’s modern capital city.
Travelling with us, you'll see the very best of Jordan, be it on one of our group tours escorted by our expert local tour guides, or our range of private tours, star gazing events or a tailor made holiday. We also recommend combining a visit to nearby Egypt or Israel with your holiday to Jordan.
Travelling on our on our guided groups, you get to camp out in Wadi Rum and experience Bedouin life, learn to cook traditional Jordanian food, buy seasonal fruits at road side stalls from local villagers, watch unleavened bread being made on an open fire and get off the beaten track and take the secret entrance into Petra.
With the once lost city of Petra, vast desert of Wadi Rum and the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea making it to the top of most travellers’ wish lists in Jordan, we’ve made sure these are included on all of our group tours. Ensuring you’re taken care of every step of the way, we stay at comfortable 3-4 star hotels, the tours are led by expert local guides and return airport transfers are included too .

Celebrate Christmas Day with a Jordanian feast in Petra or bring in the New Year under a glittering sky of stars at our desert camp in Wadi Rum. Imagine lolling about in the Dead Sea, exploring crusader castles, delving into the mysterious city of Petra and 4x4 driving through the red Wadi Rum desert - a perfect way top off 2015!
With private transport, a choice of high quality hotels and experienced local Jordanian guides to show you around all of the key sites, plus local representatives available to offer further assistance should you require it, you'll get a true flavour of Jordan travelling on a private tour with us.
All our tours start in Jordan's vibrant capital Amman and we also include a visit to the Dead Sea as well as 2 nights in Petra, giving you lots of time to explore this amazing site.
Get off road in the vast red landscape of Wadi Rum and dance round a crackling bonfire, wander down the Siq and iconic Monastery of Petra by day, marvel at the brilliant starry sky above the facade of the Treasury by night; float in the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea; take in incredible views of the Promised Land from sacred Mt Nebo; explore medieval crusader castles or trek through the Dana Nature Reserve.
Hidden away in a secluded valley amidst the mountainous Jordanian landscape, it is no wonder why Petra was lost to the world for hundreds of years before its rediscovery in the 1800s. With the winding narrow passage way of the Siq, impressive Treasury facade, a beautiful hilltop monastery and numerous other monuments you’ll need at least two days at this impressive archaeological site. Plus why not visit at night, when the entire site is illuminated in the glow of candle light.
Renowned for its sandstone landscape of mountains and valleys, natural arches, towering cliffs, narrow gorges and dramatic ramps and caverns formed over millions of years, the Valley of the Moon is nothing less than spectacular. The best way of experiencing Wadi Rum for yourself is by witnessing the sunset over the vast silent horizon and spending a night under the stars.
Dating back some 2000 years, the ancient town of Jerash is brimming with remarkably well-preserved ruins that are testament to its grandiose past as a thriving Roman hub. Colonnaded streets marked by chariots, the remains of a once magnificent theatre, public squares, ruinous temples and the impressive Arch of Hadrian are just some of Jerash’s many treasures.
Modern day Amman is a thriving Arabian city with two very different vibes. In the west you’ll find trendy cafes and art galleries, bustling shops and coffee houses spilling into the streets, while in the east there very much remains a more traditional way of life and numerous ancient sites to explore. Both areas are well-worth discovering to see two different aspects of Jordanian city life.
Set in the relaxed town of Madaba in central Jordan, Mt Nebo is perhaps one of the most sacred sites in the entire nation. Believed to be where Moses first caught sight of the Promised Land, it offers incredible panoramic views of the Jordan River Valley as well as the northern shore of the Dead Sea. A trek up to the summit is well worth the huffing and puffing!
While there are so many intriguing historical sites to explore and cultural experiences to be had in Jordan, sometimes all one desires is a little R&R. If this is the case then look no further than the laid-back Red Sea city of Aqaba. Fringed with palm-trees and sandy beaches with gorgeous warm waters brimming with colourful coral reefs, a few days of relaxation here certainly won’t go amiss.
Whether you fancy bobbing like a cork or lathering yourself with mineral-rich mud on the shore, a visit to the Dead Sea is an absolute must for any trip to Jordan. The rugged coastline and buoyant blue waters of this popular site have been attracting travellers for centuries that come in search of its beauty and healing properties. Wade in and have a read while lazily floating across the horizon.
Greatest ever holiday I had. Touring around Jordan and celebrating New Year in Wadi Rum desert in Bedouin camp. We visited many places - Umm Qays, Jerash, Karak, Petra and Amman. We had the greatest tour guide - Ogla Nawafleh. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit Jordan.”
